We are very pleased to see Transverse joining the growing number of SaaS vendors that are adopting SAML and thereby enabling enterprises to better secure their cloud-based data.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) July 14, 2011
Transverse today announced it will partner with OneLogin to implement SAML-based single sign-on (SSO), making cloud-based applications more readily accessible and secure. Additionally, Transverse has integrated TRACT™ – the industry’s only comprehensive, real-time subscription and usage-based rating and billing solution in a SaaS model – with OneLogin’s industry leading cloud-based identity and access management solution.
This combined offering will eliminate the need for vulnerable and outdated password storage methods, such as spreadsheets and Post-It notes – increasingly detrimental to organizations relying on a growing number of Web-based applications for everything from email to sales automation tools to social networking sites.
SSO will help TRACT users tasked with managing the abundance of user names and passwords typical of today’s cloud-based applications. Now, TRACT users can launch applications from a secure SSO portal with one click.
By integrating TRACT with thousands of Web applications already integrated with OneLogin, enterprises also save money, improve efficiency and enhance security. With a reasonable per-user fee, users can now gain secure access to any of these applications.
Because TRACT leverages the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) 2.0 standard from OASIS, enterprises will reap many benefits, including:
- Security – Based on strong digital signatures for authentication and integrity, SAML is a secure single sign-on protocol on which the largest and most security conscious enterprises in the world rely.
- Standards-based – Ensures interoperability across identity providers and gives enterprises the freedom and flexibility to choose a vendor.
- Usability – One-click access from portals or intranets, deep linking, password elimination and automatically renewing sessions make life easier for the user.
- Directory integration – The elimination of passwords allows the SaaS vendor to leverage identity providers’ directory integration capabilities.
“We are very pleased to see Transverse joining the growing number of SaaS vendors that are adopting SAML and thereby enabling enterprises to better secure their cloud-based data,” said Thomas Pedersen, CEO, OneLogin. “We look forward to collaborating with Transverse to provide enterprises with the right tools to quickly and securely manage identities in the cloud.”
“TRACT integrates with OneLogin using SAML 2.0 so all OneLogin customers can log into TRACT securely without having to re-enter their user names and passwords. TRACT's open architecture and OneLogin's free toolkit made it easy to implement SAML,” said Stephan Pahlke, vice president, product solutions, Transverse.
